Dr Bryan C Mendelson.

FRCSE FRACS FACS.

Dr Bryan Mendelson has given over 100 presentations to plastic surgery colleagues around the world. He has developed a global audience keen to learn the results of his 25 years of original research into facial anatomy and the pathogenesis of facial ageing.

He has performed live surgical demonstrations of the limited dissection composite facelift in: London, Calgary, Cologne, Madrid, Milan, Dallas, Istanbul, Moscow, Bangkok, Brazil, Australia, Italy and Taiwan.

His pre-eminence in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery has been recognised with numerous awards and accolades. Dr Mendelson is a past President of ISAPS, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and is a founder and Head of Faculty of the Melbourne Advanced Facial Anatomy Course (MAFAC).

M A F A C.

Dr Mendelson is one of the founding members of the Melbourne Advanced Facial Anatomy Course.

MAFAC has been developed specifically for practicing Plastic Surgeons or Plastic Surgery Trainees in their final year, to advance their understanding of facial anatomy to the level where they can comfortably and safely incorporate the benefits of recent advances into their clinical practice.

The Melbourne Advanced Facial Anatomy Course is based around a tightly structured, two day dissection program focused on maximising surgeons ‘learning through hands on experience’. Participants readily understand the facial layers, the important facial nerve relationships and their applications, using the surgical quality cadavers at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons with direction from the experienced Faculty.

Tarsal Fixation Masterclass.

The best upper lid blepharoplasty results are obtained using The Tarsal Fixation technique. Yet, it is of concern that only a few Plastic Surgeons are comfortable with performing this procedure. Their general attitude towards upper lid blepharoplasty seems to be that ‘good is good enough’, whereas, given the aesthetic importance of the upper eyelids, ‘good is the enemy of best’.

Several factors may explain why few surgeons have adopted this more advanced procedure. First, the improved quality of result may not be appreciated. Then, there is a significant learning curve in performing the procedure correctly. Finally, there is a lack of teaching on the specifics of the procedure, even more so now that the surgeons who pioneered and promoted the procedure have retired.

To overcome this situation, so that Plastic Surgeons can learn the procedure properly and be able to confidently introduce it into their practice, Dr Mendelson conducts a comprehensive Tarsal Fixation Masterclass at his Day Surgery Centre in Melbourne. Dr Mendelson’s experience qualifies him to do this. He has over 20 years experience performing the Tarsal Fixation technique as this is the only upper blepharoplasty procedure he performs. Dr Mendelson has taught the procedure to many established Plastic Surgeons and is recognised for his expertise in the procedure.

The intensive one day Workshop is structured to allow the attendees to learn comprehensively, by combining observation of live surgery, right at the surgeons side, with tutorials to cover all aspects of the theory of the procedure; from basic principles to advanced variations and avoidance of complications.

In theatre the attendees observe several tarsal fixation blepharoplasties being performed. This is where all the details are taught, from the skin markings to the technical details including the nuances that separate ordinary results from the best, The technical nuances are best learnt at surgery, which is why they are not discussed in the few panels at the Instructional Courses on the subject.

Several postoperative patients are reviewed to observe the ‘normal recovery’, as well as the recommended details of the aftercare.

Tutorials

The Masterclass commences with the first Tutorial on Thursday evening at 8:00pm.

The other Tutorials are on Friday morning in between the operative cases.
